Solgar® L-Theanine 150 mg contains the non-dietary amino acid and natural phytochemical L-Theanine.
Many people turn to a comforting cup of tea when we’re feeling anxious or stressed. This may be due the amino acid L-Theanine that is commonly found in green tea. As well as green tea, this amino acid can also be found in black, and white teas from the Camellia sinensis plant.
Amino acids are classified as the building blocks of protein and are needed in several internal functions of the body. This particular amino acid is not common in the diet and cannot be made by the body. It has a chemical structure similar to a neurotransmitter type of amino acid, glutamine, which naturally occurs in the body. L-Theanine is able to cross the blood brain barrier and can influence brain wave activity.
These Solgar® capsules are suitable for vegans, vegetarians, and those following a gluten-free or Kosher diet. They are also free from artificial colours, flavours, sweeteners, and preservatives, alongside containing no dairy, no lactose, no soy, no wheat and no yeast.
If taken with prescribed medication, please consult your doctor!
